A quiet retreat

Many of us can only truly relax when the usual pressures of our day-to-day lives are lifted. Cae'r Hendre provides the perfect place to unwind. On a wet day curl up and read a book in front of the woodburning stove or gather round and play a board game or do a jigsaw. If the weather is fine soak up the sun and the views from the pretty patio area. This quiet, mountain-side location is shared with the owner's across the courtyard so you can enjoy peace without being completely isolated. Walk into the nearby village of Llangynidr for lunch at the The Coach and Horses Inn on the canal and then home for a game of scrabble and a glass of wine.

Fantastic walks and cycle routes from your door

Cae'r Hendre is a perfect location for a break. Set within a quiet courtyard in a stunning valley, there is easy access onto the Brecon Beacons. The Blaen-y-Glyn waterfalls are 20-30 minutes drive from Cae'r Hendre and are well worth a visit.

Llangynidr, known for its 5 canal locks

Cae'r Hendre sits about 2 miles up the lane from the small village of Llangynidr. This thriving little community has two good pubs, both within a pleasant hour's walk. The Monmouthshire and Brecon canal passes through five locks as it travels through this little village and is a wonderful setting from which to feed the ducks and swans or enjoy a quiet walk. Make sure that you take a boat ride to see the canal from a completely different perspective - the tow-paths provide miles of easy cycling too. The fairy glen walk along the river is truly magical.
